The New Bull Argument: All You Can Eat Layoffs!

Just as someone will desperately try to escape quicksand at any costs and latch onto anything they can when they realize they are not positioned properly for it, so too are bulls who likely deep down know they are now fighting a losing battle (i.e. fighting a tightening Fed) amid slowing growth if not contraction.  As the quicksand becomes more...

Louis, I Think This is the Beginning of a Beautiful Reversal

Despite a flurry of calls for a new bull market, you will note that the Nasdaq Composite Index, below on the updated daily chart, remains soundly below a declining 200-day simple moving average (yellow line). From a technical perspective, this is the essence of a bearish trend.  And while I doubt the Nasdaq will lead the next bull market I also...

Central Banks Are Not Absolved of Their Sins

The Bank of Japan will kick the can all it wants, as it did overnight by continuing their Yield Curve Control monetary experiment, but in the end history says the final judgment will be ruthless. Considering Japan was once considered the epitome of a culture centered around honor, seeing its Central Bank devolve into a limp-wristed coward is...

The Catalyst Always Comes Out of Left Field

I can assure you, as someone who lived through, traded, and diligently tracked and then revisited 2008 well after the fact, that very few people in the months leading up to (i.e. BEFORE!) Lehman Brothers failing--and the subsequent fallout--were expecting just that. Sure, I could always cherry-pick 9/11 in the prior bear market but, as we know,...

Line it Up for the Real Start of the New Year

This is a concept we discussed with Members as far back as mid-December, and it is worth repeating: It can often take up to two weeks after the holidays for the market to truly regain that full squad feeling and have it reflected in volumes-- Markets will be closed this Monday, January 16th in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.  ...

Big Round Numbers and Obvious Tests

After basically an inline CPI report, markets popped, reversed a bit lower, and are recovering now as I write this albeit with the Nasdaq slightly red. I still maintain this is the phase of the bear market where nonstop hope is attempting to singlehandedly reverse the dominant trend lower, but ultimately fails--We saw a similar situation in the...

Everyone Wants to Fix Broken People

Just as you might go through a phase in life where you try to fix broken people, so too do traders in bear markets often try to fix broken charts. But the same bitter lessons apply: In life, some people are broken and do not want to be fixed. If you try to fix them, you yourself are often subjected to various shrapnel from their destruction,...

CPI Estimates Need to Be More Aggressive

The big showdown in markets this week is clearly the CPI print Thursday morning, something which should be apparent given the price action so far today and this week. Estimates are averaged out to be 6.5%, which strikes me as, appropriately given market sentiment, hopeful more than anything else--Hopeful that inflation will recede aggressively...
